A bra is an undergarment typically made for females to wear. The purpose of a bra is to support the breasts and help push them up to create a “sexier” look. The truth is, women don’t really need bras at all. They don’t necessarily support the health of the breasts and can sometimes be even more damaging. And people don’t really seem to care about using bras for sex appeal as much as they used to. Celebrities have definitely noticed this, so many actresses and musicians are ditching their straps. Check out these 18 ladies who decided they’d rather burn their bra than wear it!
#18 Mariah Carey
Mariah Carey is known as one of the greatest female pop singers of all time. She’s able to hit all the highest notes and always stays in key. She doesn’t always find herself staying in a bra, however. Perhaps it’s just her outfit of choice, but it looks as though Mariah decided to ditch the straps!
#17 Selena Gomez
Selena Gomez was once the innocent Disney child star who graced our screens as a young teen. Nowadays, she’s not afraid to show that she’s transformed into a full grown woman. Perhaps it’s comfier for her since she struggles with the illness lupus, but either way, Selena knows how to rock a great style!
#16 Kylie Jenner
Kylie Jenner is almost always in the headlines for one thing or another. Lately, it’s been because of her choice to not wear a bra anymore. There have been rumors that she might have had some work done on her breasts, and if that’s the case, it makes sense that she’d want to show off her assets!
Rihanna is pretty much known as the girl who hates bras. We’d be shocked to ever actually see her wearing one. She made headlines after wearing a crystal see-through dress on the red carpet. She’s covered in tattoos and has one right below her breasts, so it makes sense she wants to show it off!
#14 Amer Rose
Amber Rose is known as “muva,” as well as being a self-proclaimed feminist. She’s an advocate for women all over the country and organized The SlutWalk to try and end slut-shaming. Makes sense that she isn’t afraid to show off her lady bits or piercings all over her social media! You will be shocked to hear this next celebrity is ditching the straps…
#13 Rita Ora
Rita Ora is best known for a singer who’s usually only featured in other popular songs as well as being “Becky with the good hair,” from Beyonce’s album Lemonade. Looks like she’s also known as Becky with the good boobs! It seems she’s well aware of this and isn’t afraid to show ’em off!
#12 Kelly Rowland
Kelly Rowland is one of the three leading ladies from the pop group Destiny’s Child and has not been afraid to speak her mind. She’s also not afraid to flaunt her breasts without wearing a bra! Kelly isn’t active in the music scene anymore, but she is still rarely seen out and about actually wearing a bra.
#11 Rumer Willis
Rumer Willis is the eldest daughter of actors Demi Moore and Bruce Willis. It’s clear that as a hybrid of the two, she’s definitely inherited some good looks of her own. She’s not afraid to bear it all, wearing the minimum of a tight black tank with no supporting bra. This next celebrity may surprise you that they went strapless…
#10 Lena Dunham
Radical feminist Lena Dunham can’t seem to keep her name out of the headlines. She’s known for stirring up some controversy, much of it being over her body. She’s constantly trying to re-define body standards for women in our country. Not wearing a bra is just one part of her women revolution!
#9 Heidi Klum
Heidi Klum is a well-known model and TV host, so her body is obviously important to her, just as important as it is to show it off. She was even rumored to have decorated her house in nude photos of herself and ex-husband Seal when the two were married. Our favorite Kardashian is next up on the list…
#8 Kendall Jenner
Kendall is the older sister of Kylie, and it’s clear that the two don’t have a big passion for bras. When asked about why she never wears a bra, Kendall told reporters that she’s “cool with her boobs.” That’s a good enough answer for us, as no one should be forced to wear a bra if they don’t want to!
#7 Olivia Wilde
Olivia Wilde is probably one of the most beautiful actresses of our current time. She’s never afraid to show off her gorgeous assets, as seen in this sleek blazer. She’s not the only actress who isn’t afraid to wear nothing under a blazer, though, as it seems to be a growing trend for popular celebrities.
#6 Miranda Kerr
It seems funny that a pretty well known Victoria’s Secret model would be so often seen without wearing a bra. But that definitely is the case for model Miranda Kerr. When a big part of your career was revolved around how great of a chest you had, it makes sense that you’d show it off as much as you could.
#5 Kim Kardashian
It seems as though Kim K has been a braless role model for her younger siblings, Kylie and Kendall Jenner. She’s been seen all over New York Fashion Week wearing gorgeous garments but no bra underneath. She doesn’t seem to care, however, and enjoys showing off her body that also has given birth to two children!
#4 Jennifer Lawrence
Jennifer Lawrence has been seen in the media as “the cool girl,” as she often talks about how she loves to eat and binge whenever possible. She also seems to cool to wear a bra, just adding to her image. She’s rarely seen in public with one on, but has no shame, as she shouldn’t!
#3 Nicki Minaj
Nicki Minaj is always turning heads with her gorgeous figure. The singer and rapper made headlines after releasing her album cover showing off her backside. She’s not afraid to show off her front side either! She’s always seen wearing low cut and revealing tops, but hey, if you got it, flaunt it, and she definitely does!
#2 Anne Hathaway
The Oscar-winning actress and mother has been seen out in public quite often without a bra. But that’s no problem for Anne, as she isn’t afraid to show off what she’s got! The classic beauty has had several nude scenes in movies, so she’s no stranger to showing off her body.
#1 Miley Cyrus
Miley Cyrus has made it pretty clear on multiple occasions that she’s an advocate for the “free the nipple” movement. She’s constantly posting racy pics on her social media but is never ashamed of showing off her body. She tries her best to be a role model for girls to not fear their own boobs but instead embrace them and flaunt them.
It’s clear that all of these gorgeous celebrities have no shame in going out in public and rocking outfits that don’t require a bra. It’s a good thing, and inspires many of their fans to do the same! While bras can definitely still be a good thing, a lot of women hate wearing them but still feel pressure from our society to wear one. Young girls get sent home from school for not wearing one and women are forced to pay for the expensive undergarments against their will. Celebrities like these are doing their absolute best to normalize nipples and make it OK for ladies everywhere to flaunt what they got!
